Awesome photos! That first shot is a great angle. It is nice to see that the vandalism seems slow there, and things stay mostly the same.


its weird this place attracts everyone!!!




Kabbalah is an undramatic tradition that requires great patience and stability. One of the reasons for this tempo is that everyone has to mature his potential gradually and thoroughly at his natural pace. In this way his life's work unfolds at the right moment in his own and the cosmos's time.

have seen the youtubes of this place. I will share a little info for you all as I have worked many years in the Funeral Service and Cemetery. Today, the term coffin is long gone. The proper name is a casket. Most of the caskets shown are metal caskets. Various guages and styles. Many with ornate metal wear on the corners. Depending on where purchased, many are made in Asia. Their are still American Casket makers. Don't see any wood caskets. Wood caskets are generally more expensive and traditionally used by older generations. The steel caskets come from very cheep to top end copper lined. Some full open couch to split lids. I do see a childs casket that looks like it may be cloth covered. Cloth covered are usually economy types to keep costs down. Many are used in cremation too. Depending on which state, some places require a container for cremation. They can be anything from cardboard container to wooden ply board. Most of these caskets in the garage area are stored until purchased.

The funeral home obviously didn't cover there caskets with cloth casket covers. I don't know the details on this place. But pretty sure nobody is or was in those caskets. Most caskets are generally shown inside a showroom in the funeral home. Some fhs use the salesman corner displays to save room and money of keeping inventory. The hearse (old term) is called a funeral coach. This is an older model. I see the landal bars are missing. Traditional curtins are a standard in coaches. Caskets generally are loaded foot first into the coach. Head always comes out first. mortuary Spray...sorry folks! Just a fancy name for disinfectant. Todays odorous removing properties are citrus based. It can help in at least covering up decomp odors. Some smell pretty strong like orange peels. Better than decomp odor! Caution to anyone handling any of the bottles left there. Posionous, cancer causing! Don't mess with it! I am surprized it hasn't been removed. Embalming fluids are generally plastic bottles, however some older bottles can still be in glass. Your not going to find any deceased in there. There is laws on all that. Not knowing why or if this place was shut down? You hear the stories of awful things that happen. Yes, there has been unscrupulous and horrific acts. But not as many as most think? The funeral rule is in play to protect everyone. Even if a place is shut down for something horrible, the authorities would have to rid of the situation and clean it up. hopefully they would. Bio hazard has to be addressed. It is sometimes fun to hear about what goes on in a funeral home, but truth is...the service is done correctly with dignity.
I do see a cooler for body storage. No! Funeral homes and mortuaries do NOT freeze bodies. They are regulated to keep the body cool enough (just above freezing) to slow down the decomposition. The coolers are used until deceased disposition is buried, shipped or cremated or ready for preparation for embalming. some long term storage may happen, but its not in the interest of a fh to store longer than a couple weeks. Yes, funeral homes will often have cremated remains in storage if they own a crematory. Fact known and realls sad. Many cremains are never picked up. Just forgotten! A funeral home has to keep those cremains incase some one claims them! So they me stored until that time. You wont find any I am sure in the fh. They would have been removed! But I don't think there is a crematory there.

So no chance! there is strict rules on cremation and disposition. Don't mean to bust anyones idea of what they are seeing, but it is still spooky. But harmless. With the exception of left behind embalming room materials. Nobody in the caskets! For those who want to believe in the spirits and ghosts. Its ok to do so! A saying in the funeral home that is true! You need not worry about the dead, it's the living folks you need to worry about! Many a night I come into the funeral home by myself at night. While you do here noises and it can be scary if you think that way, nothing is going to pop out at you! the deceased are just that deceased. The caskets outside were pulled out by someone who has been there. The set up casket coming out the back of the coach was set up by someone. The upstairs living areas I am sure have been rifled through and vandalized. I doubt that hoarding was present, but can't say it can't happen. Likely not! The rug swatches I suspect were just to replace carpeting in the parlors or even the living quarters? Also, some of the boxes in the garage area are cremation containers. Before vaults were used to place caskets in, wooden boxes were used as the vault. Some states don't require an outer burial vault for burial. Just the casket.
Also, those who are familar with the old style caskets that have the angled edges. That is called a Toe Pincher. Victorian era which were called coffins are toe pinchers. Did you know caskets made for Amish by Amish builders use wooden dowells. Not screws or metal attachments. Another thing...many mistake a concrete box or vault as a casket. This is just an outer barrier for a casket. many states require for extra barrier against time breaking down a casket. Remember, embalming is only required for a public visitation or viewing. Any shipment by aircraft, embalming and a air tray is required. Another reality many don't realize. If your flying on a airplane, many times a deceased is part of the stowage. It is all safe and done correctly. Hey, even the deceased need to fly to their final resting place. Anyway, just thought I would put this out just for reference. I know nothing of this fh and what happened, but don't go in thinking something is there that isn't. Have fun exploring and stay away from the embalming room materials! Pure cancerous poison!

Nobody in the caskets!


Holy funeral balls Batman! That's a lot of info! Seriously interesting stuff. I think there would be very few people who wouldn't be curious as to what happen to our bodies after we pass. Thanks for sharing!

On another note, the guys I linked below missed the memo on not leaving anyone behind. This was a known abandonment, and there were many news stories about it. Surely the majority here has come across these on the internet before, however it is not in the DB. While the story is confirmed, that does not mean the pics are real. The explorer could have staged the pics long after the bodies were removed. So, the tale is real, but the pics could have been faked - I've no clue. None the less, it's just horrifying to think of something like this happening to one of our own.

Yeah, I haven't a clue. Anything is possible, but would have to think someone would have reported and the place checked for any shennanigans or wrong doing. Never say never. Even in funeral service, you never really see or hear it all. Lol

It's always incredible to me how often human remains are left in these kinds of places. The amount of neglect required for that is absolutely absurd.

Awesome set of photos. I know of an old school converted to a funeral home then abandoned and it still has unclaimed cremated remains in boxes...so sad!

It happens and those responsible should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. It is awful! But of course, all the bad stories are reported (as should be) but 95 percent of Funeral Service is done excellent and proper. And of course, the news stories that come out and the talk get exaggerated each time its mentioned. changes drastically. Like gossip. Human nature I guess? Its not my intent to change anyones mind. I was just offering my insite or observation on this case in the post. Just so other can might understand what might be seen in the photos. For the purposes of exploration, these are intresting photos! Sad but it happens.
